MCDC Investigator
Project title: 
Anopheles funestus in the senegal river basin: role in malaria transmission and characterization of populations.

Background

Badara obtained a Masters Degree (Postgraduate diploma) in Animal Biology in 2005 at the Université Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar and Medical Entomology Laboratory of Institut Pasteur of Dakar, working on the distribution, bio-ecology and role in malaria transmission of newly established Anopheles funestus populations in the Senegal River Basin. In 2008, he participated in the entomological evaluation of "Indoor Residual Spraying Programme", implemented by WHO in Senegal. In 2008 and 2009, he did an internship at the Laboratoire de Lutte contre les Insectes Nuisibles (IRD, Montpellier, France) to study the population genetic structure of Anopheles funestus using mitochondrial DNA (nd5) and microsatellite loci.
